Australia Post mobile review: Our verdict

Although you might be more used to Australia Post delivering your packages, they have a set of respectable 30-day prepaid phone plans, too.

Not only are its plans affordable, they come packed with extra features too. Australia Post has data banking, data sharing between plans on the same account, and data gifting to other Australia Post customers.

Australia Post could be right for you if:

  • You like data flexibility. Data gifting, sharing, and banking means you can move data around between months and accounts more easily than with most providers.
  • You're looking for value. Australia Post mobile plans are priced well, and its 30-day expiry period ensures you pay for 1 less recharge per year compared to a 28-day plan.
  • You want an easily accessible mobile plan. Australia Post sells its plans both online and in-store at the post office. You can choose to get it delivered to your house, or pick one up from your local Australia Post outlet.

But keep in mind that Australia Post:

  • Doesn't offer international roaming. You'll have to pick up a local or travel SIM to get service overseas.

Value for money

Australia Post has decent value on its monthly prepaid plans, averaging $0.83 per 1GB. This is great compared to a benchmark of $1 per 1GB.
Aus Post also sells 1 long expiry plan, which lasts for 365 days.The value of this plan is pretty average, with nothing that stands out against the competition.

Things to watch out for:

  • Bonus data on Australia Post mobile plans only lasts for the first 3 recharges. Your monthly data allowance will drop by 20GB on selected plans from your 4th month onwards.

coverage icon

Coverage

Australia Post uses the Optus 4G network to provide coverage to its customers.

  • The Optus network covers 98.5% of the population – more than Vodafone (96%), but less than Telstra (99.5%).
  • You'll get exactly the same coverage as if you'd bought your plan directly from Optus.
  • Customers in metro areas should have no reception issues, but you could lose coverage in some rural and regional areas.

Customer Service Icon

Customer service

If you need help or want to resolve an issue, Australia Post is available 8:30am-6pm AEST Monday to Friday, or 9am-2pm on Saturdays. You can:

  • Ring the customer support team.
  • Send a direct message to customer support or fill out the online contact form for a slower response.
  • Keep in mind that while you can purchase Australia Post mobile plans at the post office, you're unlikely to receive any specialised customer support for your plan.

bonus icon

Bonus features

Australia Post has a number of extra features on its mobile plans, mostly revolving around data.

🔄 Data rollover

Up to 100GB of unused data will rollover to the next month when you recharge before your plan expires.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 Data sharing

If you have multiple 30-day expiry plans on the same account, data is automatically pooled between them. This can be convenient for a family or if you have multiple devices.

🎁 Data gifting

You can gift data in 1GB blocks to other Australia Post mobile customers.

The most you can gift is 5GB per month on the 30-day plans, or 60GB over the year on the 365-day expiry option.

🌏 International call credit

A couple of Australia Post's plans come with international call credit that you can use to make PAYG calls to any destination. This can be handy if you need just a little overseas calling credit.
